Need a snow plow? There’s an app for that

Uber-like service now offers snow plows for 30 cities

With snow being measured in feet across the Midwest and the East Coast in the last week, snowplow drivers have been busy. But, what if you don’t have a service? You figured the snow blower or a good old-fashioned shovel can do the trick most days. And, now, you’re just plain tired or your snow blower couldn’t keep up. There’s an app for that.

A company called Plowz & Mowz offers Uber-like service for plowing snow and cutting grass. It operates in 30 cities across the country. Smartly, they just started in Providence, Rhode Island in the last two days. They also operate in Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan where snow piled up on Super Bowl Sunday.

Here’s how it works:

You download the free app (plowzandmowz)

Or you can go online
You enter you address, driveway information, and when you want your plow
You get a quote and decide if you want service

Pricing will depend on demand, amount of snow and shape of your driveway. The plow does not include salting, sidewalks or deicing. You can also order a plow for a friend, or relative which may come in handy.

Here’s a list of some of the cities where they either plow or mow:

  • Virginia Beach, VA
  • Raleigh, NC
  • Albany, NY Area
  • Grand Rapids, MI
  • Lansing, MI
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Columbus, OH
  • Providence, RI – last two days
  • Buffalo, NY Area
  • Tampa, FL
  • Nashville, TN
